With my busy schedules, sketching allows me to satisfy that need to draw and paint. My sketches are done in Moleskine sketchbook, 5 1/2 by 8 1/2. I usually have my TWSBI fountain pen with Noodler’s Lexington Grey ink and waterbrush attached to the Moleskine. If I have time in the early morning brushes and water on the dining table ready for a quick watercolor painting. And of course, my coffee.
I had been busy with portrait drawings commissions lately. Most of the commissions came from the St. James Holiday Bazaar Annual Sales. Exposure is good!

Here’s the last three of the tiny paintings of dogs. The white chihuahua I met at a park. The sun was out and bright so when I took the photo she was looking away. The little brown dog is my chihuahua/miniature pinscher mix who was wearing her little rain jacket. She only wore it once. And the pug is another dog I met on the street who didn’t want her picture taken.
There are available for purchase at the Pence Gallery store in Davis.
